#1

Q: What is it?
A: Program for both viewing and generating Byte Map Fonts (abbr. BMF) and Lump Fonts (extension is .LMP).
It's intended for the newest generations of Doom ports including ZDoom, GZDoom and Zandronum. Works in pair with SLADE.

A: Which version is actual?
Q: Actual version is Doom Font Genesis V1.7.3 - URANIUM.

Q: Which modes program has?
A: It has viewing mode without editing and creator mode for creating font
using some installed font on the OS as a base.

Q: Alright, can you give me some help and tips about it?
A: Help is not too much verbose but gives some information. Check program Help.
The main tip is that only small subset of fonts can by synthesized
and even smaller subset will look good in the game.

Q: What programming language was used to made this?
A: Program is written in Java 1.8.

Q: Is program open or closed source?
A: I decided to make it open-source for the benefits and good for all of us.

Yo; my program has been upgraded to support lump fonts (.lmp) and renamed to "Doom Font Genesis". On the other hand I decided to make the source public since I am aiming at people to learn programming and I love people. This what I am doing is for their benefits.

New version, unlocked 1.7.3 URANIUM with new features and fixed bugs when palette is maxed out. Visually no difference, but under the hood it's completely hot.
If you had problems with color overflow (when choosing Palette: None), now the problem is no more. It has simple minimal deviation algorithm when you reach 256 colors in palette so you always choose the best match for color.
Visually less difference, but it doesn't anymore strain or limits the user from doing just that.

Enjoy using this program and throw in some feedback or thoughts about it!
